Batley Torchlight Procession

The procession was led by Rt Rev Marcus Stock, Bishop of Leeds remembering especially Jo Cox, MP

Our thanks go to Will Inglehearn Year 11, Luke Barnes Year 11, Louisa Morris Year 10, Aidan Silcock
Year 10, Sam Clifford-Hassan Year 10, Alessandra Orlandini Year 10 and May Gavin Year 10, all
members of the Newman Group who represented St. Mary’s on Monday's annual Torchlight
Procession in Batley. Pilgrims from across the Diocese assembled in the Market Square before
processing with lighted torches to the beautiful church of St. Mary of the Angels where Bishop Marcus led us in the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and then Benediction. The group then enjoyed hot dogs and pie and peas before making the journey home.

Thanks to Mrs Pounder for driving the minibus and Mrs Millar and Mrs Trumble from Horsforth parish for their support.
